The Sheffield superwoman is set to be awarded 2011 world heptathlon gold after the Court of Arbitration for Sport announced Russia's Tatyana Chernova will be stripped of the title she won in Daegu due to a doping offence.

Chernova, 28, won gold ahead of Ennis-Hill in Daegu on 30 August 2011.

In 2015, she was banned for two years for doping and stripped of two years of results, up to 14 August 2011.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) now insists she must forfeit the world title she won two weeks later.

It comes after an analysis of her biological passport, dating back to 2009.

Cas has imposed an additional ban, saying: "All results between 15 August 2011 and 22 July 2013 are annulled and the athlete will forfeit any titles, awards, medals, points and prize and appearance money obtained during this period."

Ennis - a firm advocate of a clean sporting environment - will be thrilled.

Last year, she took her case to the International Association of Athletics Federations but has had to wait until now for firm news that Chernova has been stripped of the world gong.
